The pump did not fit the washer. The pump sat too far down causing the nozzle to be impeded by the shape of the washer base.

The pump did not fit the washer. The situation required that I drill holes in the washer base to match holes in the pump base. The pump sat too far down causing the nozzle to be impeded by the shape of the washer base. To rectify this I used bolts and nuts to secure pump to washer base and used three washers for each of the three nuts to raise the pump into the proper position. After jockeying the pump into place, it works fine, so far. The water pump is a simple enough device that relays on sturdy bearings and a proper seal. If the pump fails it will be entirely because the bearings wore out as with the last much cheaper replacement pump I purchased ($14). The original started leaking eight years after we bought the machine.

Followed directions on Parts Select Video found on You Tube. Only thing different was the use of coins inserted into springs to relieve tension .This is a great tip and worked very nicely.

The lid hinges on our washer had broken off the pins and both needed to be replaced.

The first thing we did was to lift the top of the washer off the main box by unscrewing the hinges at the back of the washer. We then were able to access the lid hinge screws located underneath the lid. We unscrewed and removed the old hinges from the washer, lifting the lid off the washer. Then we were able to unscrew and remove the old hinges from the lid itself. We then screwed on the new hinges and pins, and reattached the lid to the washer. Finally we put the top back on the main box of the washer and screwed the top back onto the main assembly, and voila! It works great and saved us $200 in repairs.

Shaking, bouncing, banging, during the spin cycle

I followed the directions online, but they don't talk about two difficulties with this model. The first is removing the drive belt. This is CRUCIAL! Tilt the dryer backwards, and remove the belt from the pulleys. When putting it back on, when the repair is complete put it on the two smaller pulleys first, and then the large pulley. The other difficulty that is not addressed with this model is accessing the suspension springs. If you choose not to remove the entire housing, I would use a wooden block (2x4 works great) to act as a lever for the vicegrips. I may be weak, but I have a bruised forearm that would have been avoided if I had thought of the wooden block earlier.

I removed the belt and pully form under the washer. Lefted the top cover, removed the hardware above the tub, took the front cover panel off to gain access to the tub. Used pliers to remove the springs. Lifted the tub up high enough to install the snubber ring. After putting tht washer back together and doing the first the load the washer stopped banging.

Replaced water in-flow valve it's fixed! Removing the washer case to replace the part would have been the most painful job of all. I used dremel cutter to cut a hole in the back panel to access to the valve rather than trying to figure out how to remove the washer case! It works fine! Part was delivered in time. Thanks!

The repair was very simple. We got the part faster than we thought we would had our son hold the washer on a tilt and put on the drive belt, took 2 times because it was twisted but we got on. The washer is much quieter and it was worth the shipping fee.

Washer jumping around during spin cycle

I used Utube to search for Performa Washing machine jumping around. You will find several videos that will be extreamly helpful in understanding exactly how to go about changing the sunbber ring. The snubber ring is fairly easy to change out. Quarters were used to hold the springs apart so they can be removed. Push the tub forward and away from the spring you want to remove. Install several quarters in the spring. Use as many as you can get in. Then pull the tub toward you and the spring can be removed from the tub. There are six springs to remove. I just left them laying in place at the bottom of the washing machine base. There are videos on utube also of using the quarters to remove the springs. Of course if you have spring removal tool for this purpose so much the better. I didn't have one. Good luck with your install. MB in TN

Used the testimonial found on your web site. Pulled off top flipped machine on its back removed springs from tub. Once tub removed loosened square drive nuts part way until snubber ring could be removed. Installed new ring and reassembled. To install agitator be removing bolt inside broken agitator auger. Easy to do saved alot of $$$ by doing myself. Thanks!!
